More Bush butt covering.

One thing you can say about the Bush family they know how to cover their butts (as do the Kennedy's) and they seem to get away with it because most people are not looking, or they hide the evidence so well that only the most intrepid investigators can find it. That is if it is not protected behind the walls of a presidential "executive order".
Maureen Dowd lays this all out in her column yesterday. A very funny yet insightful piece about what is really going on in Washington. While most of America sleeps Bush operatives work behind the scenes including the new Secretary of Defense Bob Gates cleaning up the mess the blundering boy George W. Bush has created. Heres some of Dowd's funny and insightful column:
The Problem:
"Poppy Bush and James Baker gave Sonny the presidency to play with and he broke it. So now they’re taking it back." "They are dragging W. away from those reckless older guys who have been such a bad influence and getting him some new minders who are a lot more practical. "

On Rumsfeld's sacking:
"In a scene that might be called “Murder on the Oval Express,” Rummy turned up dead with so many knives in him that it’s impossible to say who actually finished off the man billed as Washington’s most skilled infighter. (Poppy? Scowcroft? Baker? Laura? Condi? The Silver Fox? Retired generals? Serving generals? Future generals? Troops returning to Iraq for the umpteenth time without a decent strategy? Democrats? Republicans? Joe Lieberman?)

The Plan:
"Mr. Gates, already on Mr. Baker’s “How Do We Get Sonny Out of Deep Doo Doo in Iraq?” study group, left his job protecting 41’s papers at Texas A&M to return to Washington and pry the fingers of Poppy’s old nemesis, Rummy, off the Pentagon."

BCP NOTE: My advice to anyone working at the Pentagon or even the Whitehouse is make sure you write down everything you see that is going on. Because as the political whitewash begins a lot of history may be covered over!
